What happens when you take three of R&Bâs most successful male artists in the last ten years to form the ultimate super group? Three letters: TGT. The bond between Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank is deeper than just musical. The three have been friends for nearly a decade and even though they have had incredible success on their own, they are ready to show that together, they are bringing true R&B back.
Tyrese Gibson has become a seasoned vet in the worlds of music and film as well as a respected author. Tyrese, who has been a sensation in the R&B world for nearly two decades, is responsible for such classics as âSweet Ladyâ and âHow You Gonna Act Like That." Tyrese has transitioned into the world of film starring in the leading role of the John Singleton classic, Baby Boy. Since his silver screen debut, Tyrese has gone on to create a body of work which includes Annapolis, Death Race, Four Brothers and starring roles in the global box office sensations The Fast And The Furious and Transformers. In addition, Gibson is a two time New York Times best-selling author with How To Get Out of Your Own Way and Manology (co-penned with Rev Run). However, music remains his first love which is prevalent in his Grammy-nominated disc Open Invitation which features the #1 single "Stay" which remained at the #1 position for 11 consecutive weeks on Billboardâs Urban AC chart.
Ginuwine, born Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, released his first album "Ginuwine...The Bachelor" in 1996 after teaming up with superstar producer Timbaland and the late Static Major who co-wrote the lead and classic single "Pony." The singer has since released a number of multi-platinum selling albums and singles, becoming one of R&B's top artists and having collaborated with R&B/Hip Hop Legends including the likes of R. Kelly & Missy Elliott. Ginuwine also entered into the world of acting, starring in the film Juwanna Man, as well as having guest appearances on television shows and stage plays.
Durrell Babbs, better known as Tank, is the self-proclaimed âGeneral of R&Bâ who has created some of the genreâs most sensual, emotion-evoking love songs. Heâs an icon in the making, with four albums and eight Grammy nominations under his belt. Fans know Tank for his smash hits âMaybe I Deserveâ and âPlease Donât Go,â but he is also the man behind the songs from some of R&Bâs biggest stars such as Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown, Keyshia Cole and more. But itâs one of the biggest records of Tankâs career that brought TGT to life. Tank called on his Tyrese and Ginuwine for the official remix to âPlease Donât Go,â the world got their first taste of TGT.
